A skeleton is discovered buried in the cellar of a derelict London house. There’s no clue as to the victim’s identity, but Detective Chief Inspector Cassie Stuart (the splendid Nicola Walker) is doggedly determined to put a name to the muddy bones.
It’s not a new premise for a crime thriller, but
is written by Chris Lang, whose CV includes memorable, out of the ordinary dramas A Mother’s Son, Undeniable and Torn.
Unforgotten is similarly fascinatingly off-kilter – as the first episode unfolds, we are introduced to a wildly disparate series of individuals, including Tom Courtenay as a disabled man caring for a wife with dementia and Trevor Eve as an ambitious businessman. (The cast is full of big names.)
We know that this patchwork of stories will somehow come together to make a whole as the victim is lifted, piece by piece, from a shallow grave.
Crime drama, starring Nicola Walker and Sanjeev Bhaskar as detectives investigating a cold-case killing from almost 40 years earlier. The discovery of a skeleton in the cellar of a demolished building launches a murder hunt, headed up by DCI Cassie Stuart and DS Sunny Khan. However, all they have to go on is a car key found near the body, which leads them on a search to find out who he is, as well as how, when and why he died. WithTom Courtenay, Trevor Eve, Bernard Hill, Ruth Sheen, Gemma Jones and Hannah Gordon.
